Hello Pals,

It has been sooo long since we have blogged. I wish we could say that we were traveling the world searching for adventure to explain our absence. But, no. We have remained home.

We went to a couple of agility trials. Oh, how fun that was!! I, of course, did splendidly. And, for a change, Mother agreed. I took pity on her for one run, and actually did as she requested. And, I made her very happy when I received a ribbon for qualifying.

Today is Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday, and I found it quite fitting to sniff out something interesting.

And, did you know that he had a dog named Fido? Here is an old time photo of the fellow.

Rumor has it that he had the run of the house, and lived inside. But, he did not like the hustle and bustle of Washington, so he was given to a family who lived in Springfield, Illinois under the stipulation that he lived inside and was given special treats. How sweet!
